According to a new poll conducted by Goucher College (and cited at Maryland Reporter), more than 80 percent of Marylanders support the essence of Gov. Martin O’Malley’s gun-control proposals, which call for more rigmarole for those seeking handgun licenses, including fingerprinting.
So chalk the controversy up to a very vocal and organized minority. As you would expect, support was lower among gun-owning households, but shockingly remained above 50 percent.
Capital punishment is nearly a toss-up (again, blowing my mind!), with 51 percent in favor of retaining executions.
Note to self: Internet comments are not an accurate measure of what the majority believe.
